Haye backs Anthony Joshua


Anthony Joshua will unleash “devastating” power on Oleksandr Usyk who could even be knocked out by a jab from Britain’s world heavyweight champion, David Haye has said.

Haye attempted to mastermind Usyk’s defeat while managing the career of Derek Chisora last year, a fight which ended with a unanimous decision against Chisora, and does not see any way the Ukrainian can withstand Joshua’s raw strength and superior size.


“I think his style might be very effective if AJ was 6’2” and 14st,” Haye told Sky Sports.

“But AJ isn’t. AJ is 6’6” and he’s an absolute specimen, and he’s one of the best athletes ever in the heavyweight division.

“That just spells knockout defeat for Usyk.


“If Usyk was the future of the heavyweight division and he’s going to be good enough to beat AJ, he should have at least stopped Derek Chisora or won by a landslide.”—Sky Sports
